Massacre in San Carlos Cutris Farm

The bodies of four men were found on a farm in San Carlos for no apparent motive. This is the third case of multiple murders this year.

Four people were found without life Friday morning, in the vicinity of a house in La Palma del Recreo, Cutris, in San Carlos de Alajuela, near the Nicaragua border.

The finding was confirmed by the Red Cross and the Ministry of Public Security (MSP), which detailed that the alert of the incident entered at 11:37 a. m.

When the Cruz Roja (Red Cross) and authorities arrived at the scene at the Los Parientes farm, shortly after 11:30  am, paramedics and police officers Fuerza Publica (national police) initially located three bodies, some 10 meters from the house, two were covered with grass and leaves, and the other was under a tree.

Police tracked the area after locals said four men had been working the farm, when they found the fourth body a kilometer from the house, in a ravine.

“The Fuerza Publica received an alert about some bodies found; the officers went to inspect the farm and, in effect, found four people without life,” said Jaime Sibaja, spokesman for the Ministerio de Seguridad Publica (MSP).

On the other hand, the redoubt Kendall Araya, who works at the Santa Rosa de Pocosol headquarters, said that they tried not to move the bodies much to avoid contamination of the scene, so they only verified that none had vital signs.

“When we arrived at the scene, we found four people who died. According to what we saw, they had bullet wounds, but we tried not to touch the bodies very much so as not to contaminate the scene,” explained paramedic Kendall Araya from the Santa Rosa de Pocosol Cruz Roja.
